Teachers - more is being asked of them in the same amount of time available and the only loser is the student. International trips are a gift that shouldn't cause a headache for any participant. Finance leaders in educational institutions that are being asked to ‘deliver more with less’, are looking at transformational changes they can make to their payments and spend management. Simple steps are moving the dial:
Parents - With a child living overseas, the last thing you need to worry about is transferring money to them. Yet, understandably, the exchange and transfer of funds abroad always feels like a risk. Caxton Cards and International payments are reducing parents exposure to currency fluctuations and simplifying the cost of funding an overseas education.
The school trip – a formative time in a young person's life and education – safely travelling away from home whether it be to the next county or country - the permission slips are signed the fees are paid, the bags are packed, and the mind is ready to participate - that’s the experience of the students! Teachers are madly crossing off checklists. Has everyone received the list of things to bring, are the behaviour guidelines clear, are the chaperones ready. Is accommodation paid. How much cash will I need to carry.
Let's pause right there. We wouldn’t use cash on a family or personal trip so why are schools still expecting Teachers to carry cash? Moving to an automated prepaid expense card system takes the stress out of cash for teachers and they can focus on the learning outcomes for students, instead of the administration of the trip.
Parents - with a child living overseas, the last thing you need to worry about is transferring money to them. Yet, understandably, the exchange and transfer of funds abroad always feels like a risk.
